49ers’ biggest concern is the offensive line

This is my Tuesday column. Forget Colin Kaepernick and his development. Forget Frank Gore and his old legs. Forget NaVorro Bowman and his busted knee. Forget all of those concerns. The biggest concern facing the 49ers is the offensive line, from center to right guard to right tackle. Through the first three preseason games the […]

49ers vs. Chargers preseason live blog

SANTA CLARA — This is the live blog for the 49ers’ preseason game against the Chargers. I will update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box. 10:44 I’m looking down at the new field and I see faint lines in the grass about a yard apart. It looks like the 49ers laid […]

The importance of a four-man pass rush the first quarter of the season

Can the 49ers generate pressure on opposing quarterbacks with just four pass rushers if/when the NFL suspends Aldon Smith?  Or will Vic Fangio have to call blitzes and send a fifth rusher to generate some pressure? Blitzing is not a good option. The first four QBs the Niners face this season shred blitzes. 2013 passer […]

49ers have chance to show quality

This is my Friday column. The 49ers have been by far the worst team in the NFL during the preseason. In two games, the Niners have scored three points and given up 57. That means they’ve been outscored by 54. The Cowboys have been the second-worst team in the preseason. They’ve been outscored by merely […]

Sunday’s over/under

The over/under in Las Vegas for the 49ers/Chargers game on Sunday is 42. That means oddsmakers expect the Niners and Chargers to combine to score 42 points. Considering the Niners have scored three points in two preseason games, that over/under is pretty optimistic. Maybe the oddsmakers think the chances for point production will increase with […]

49ers removing grass from field in Levi’s Stadium

The 49ers are pulling up grass at Levi’s Stadium. It’s unclear whether they’re pulling up some or all of the grass. Do you think the 49ers will put in new grass or field turf? Do you think the 49ers and Chargers should play Sunday’s game in Santa Clara or San Diego? Do you think they […]
